My home base

My analytical skills

Putting your skills as a data professional to practice. With this pillar you get to delve deeper into your chosen specialization in the analytical domain.

Your development. Our responsibility.

  1. Level of assignments – We provide diversity of projects with appropriate build-up (from supportive to more independent), with the opportunity for personal level adjustment.
  2. Value for the client – We leave room for personal adjustments to ensure that our development program is aligned with the organizational goals day-to-day business on the job.
  3. Guidance – We provide an employee support system, covering everything from on the job guidance to coaching, training and personal and professional development.

  5. Learning on the job – We believe that practice makes perfect and are committed to a 70/20/10 approach. Meaning that 70% of learning takes place on the job, 20% is shared learning and 10% is training and coaching.

Our way of working

  • No shine without friction. With respect for personal boundaries, we challenge trainees to go the extra mile in a safe learning environment.
